Featuring a four-way stack that protects the crop against both corn borer and corn rootworm while providing exceptional tolerance to in-season applications of both glyphosate and Liberty herbicides, Agrisure 3000GT is the latest addition to Syngenta’s lineup of high-performance corn traits.
During a recent Syngenta Learning Center field day at Milford, Iowa, company officials explained that the Agrisure quad stack combines the glyphosate tolerance of Agrisure GT with the superior insect resistance provided by Agrisure CB/LL/RW. In field trials, this combination has demonstrated a 42-bushel-per-acre yield advantage over the untreated isoline in field trials.
With built-in tolerance to both glyphosate and Liberty herbicides, the product offers growers a solution for controlling either glyphosate- or glufosinate-tolerant volunteers in corn-on-corn rotations.
“Agrisure 3000GT gives growers more freedom than ever before to maximize yields and capitalize on higher grain prices and new market opportunities,” says Tracy Mader, Agrisure brand manager, Syngenta Seeds. “Additionally, growers can have confidence that the advanced trait insertion process used by Syngenta protects the existing yield potential of the hybrid.”
Syngenta maintains the genetic integrity of the hybrid by integrating trait genes such as Agrisure 3000GT directly into elite seed lines. The result is a rapid, efficient transfer of the desired DNA into new hybrids for outstanding insect control and herbicide tolerance without compromising the performance of the hybrid.
“Growers can plant this quad stack knowing that they have built-in insect protection and herbicide tolerance in a hybrid that is still going to perform to its highest potential,” Mader…
